I am trying to perform a backup and restore of a user's default database. the user- "myuser", was created with a default database. I have backed the user database and tried to restore it in different ways and I always get the same error when trying to connect with the user after restore:

"Cannot open user default database.Login failed (error 4064)".

It happens if I don't delete the user before restoring the database.

If I try to delete the user before restore and create it afterwards, when I try to set the default user database to the same database I get the error:

"user, group or role 'myuser' already exist in the database"

And when I try to delete the user from the restored database (in order to recreate it) I cannot, because the user's schema is connected to objects in the database.

Can anyone help?... How do I restore??
